You're out running or on your bike. Perhaps halfway up a mountain or maybe just out for a walk. You still want to take calls, get a snack or stay motivated with your songs. All you need is the Gear S3.
The Gear S3 looks and feels like a real watch but does more than a regular watch and without requiring any extra effort on your part. The features that already exist on a watch, the bezel, the crown and the crystal, can be turned, pressed or tapped for convenience, fun and pure freedom from your phone.
The Always on Display gives the Gear S3's 1.3 inch high AMOLED display the look of a true watch. Third party always on display designs are available for more variety.
Transform the appearance of your Gear S3 just by changing the watch face. With 15 pre-loaded designs and more available at the Gear App Store, it's really a matter of choice. Each one comes with a corresponding Always on Display version so you get a seamless look through and through. For something more personal, design your own watch face and Always on Display and make it truly yours.
The circular bezel is what makes the Gear S3 so effortless to use. Its beauty is in its simplicity. And it's the strong and premium stainless steel favoured by traditional watchmakers that give the Gear S3 the durability it needs to take on some of adventurous outdoor activities.
Watches serve a functional purpose but they're also valuable accessories. Meet the occasion by dressing up, dressing down or going all out by donning a new watch band of your choice from the wide selection of bands from Samsung. And since the Gear S3 is compatible with standard 22 mm bands, lack of choice is not an option.

I spent ages toying with which watch to go for, Apple Watch or this. It would have been really easy to go with the Apple Watch but it just looks bland (in my opinion). If I have a watch on my wrist I want it to look like one and the S3 frontier certainly ticks that box. Obviously the Apple Watch will not work 100% with my 6S but I was prepared to gamble on losing some of the functionality of the S3 for the looks.
Having had the S3 a few days now, I am not disappointed. Yes it would be nice to have all the same as you have if linked to Samsung phone, like SOS function, access to all apps and watch faces and being able to reply to texts and emails (if I am honest though would I really use this, as the text pad is that small I wouldn't be writing a long message). However what I do have works really well.
Taking calls on it is amazing and people on the other end can't even tell the difference. (A few reviews I read said you can't make calls on IOS but you can).
The notifications come through prompt and are useful if you don't want to be getting your phone out every 5 mins.
The free apps and Watch faces you can get are enough to do for now. PIP boy is my fave at moment. I really hope Samsung allow more access to the paid for apps and faces.
I did read a few reviews about the Bluetooth dropping out and having to reconnect. At the time of writing this has not happened to me once.
What I have found useful, is that when you go out of range from your phone your watch vibrates and a little Watch symbol appears at the top of the face. This happened when I parked up and walked away from my car so straight away I realised I had left my phone in the car.
Word of warning, be very careful buying from Amazon Market place sellers. As a few reviews have mentioned, they are selling non UK models and therefore you will be unable to update software and use certain apps. I spoke with Hottest deals UK and they said their watches where UK/Dubai models!!!!! No such thing and that means theirs will be UAE models.
All in all very happy I got this Watch. Does what I want it to do even with an iPhone and also looks amazing. (People say it's massive, I have small wrists for a 6ft2 lad and it doesn't look big at all).
Hope this helps.
There's quite a few useful apps already installed and a small selection of other ones that can be downloaded, however there doesn't seem to be a lot of new apps being released. As it stands I can't really think of anything I really need app-wise so I'm not worried about it at the moment. There are 100's and 100's of different watch faces though.
The constant tracking of heart rate, steps, sleep patterns etc. is really cool. I know that you can buy a much cheaper device to gather this info but this is one device that does that and a whole lot more. It's really useful to get Email / SMS / WhatsApp etc. notifications on your wrist and there's also the added gimmick of being able to make phone calls from your wrist, although you definitely don't look as cool as James Bond doing it!
Battery life is pretty good too. It needs charging every 2-3 days which isn't too bad. It has a wireless inductive charging station that the watch just sits in to start charging.
The only issue I have is that accidentally catching/turning the bezel when folding your arms, moving in bed or putting on a coat etc. activates the watch. There does not appear to be a way to turn this off or adjust this behaviour (not that I could find anyway!)
Overall it's a great watch and I highly recommend it.
Used S3 gear app store and found more than enough apps to boggle the mind. Including a free golf GPS which i was pleased with, however, the drain on the battery left me with 18% battery life left after a 4 hour round of golf.
Hopefully i won't just get bored of the watch as i would like to think its not just a short term gimmick, that wouldn't be the watches fault.
Points to note: this isn't a standalone smartphone on your wrist like Android smartwatches, there are versions that have 3G so if you need that functionality get the right version. Battery life is severely reduced by using GPS, battery runs for 2 days for me on normal use. Highly visible in most light conditions. The watch is water resistant but not recommended for swimming apparently ( not tried it though)
Update: Having used this watch every single day since i was delivered I am convinced it's a great bit of kit. I have installed dozens of watch faces, I've installed plenty of Apps (and removed plenty) the performance is good, I have nothing to compare it to. There is no discernible lag and 4gb storage seems adequate. I've used the GPS quite frequently and found it as accurate as my phone.
Some applications are almost pointless unless you have a magnifying glass. the pixel resolution is great (400X 400) and is sharp and bright. love it.
Using the watch as a speaker and mic is a novelty, that I personally found little use for. Using the GPS for navigating and Golf GPS drains the battery quite quickly. Normal use without using "always on" drained the battery to 60% left so in reality I believe I'll get 2 full days unless I need GPS or play too many games. My normal usage doesn't include music playing.
Wireless battery charging
GPS dedicated on the watch
Heart rate monitor
Good exercise tracker
Ease of use
Very easy to switch out watch faces
Great display, able to read in any light
Fast and plenty of Apps (for me)
Vast amount of different free watch faces
Good speaker volume
Mic picks up well
Not full Android (not sure that isn't a positive)
Most settings and apps have to be run or installed from your Android device
Can be considered big for smaller wrists
Not suitable for use whilst swimming
GPS drains the battery quickly
The black look isn't for everyone
2 days battery life
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this watch.
